Within the vacuum lies an oasis,
Our home amongst the stars.
Created from a solar basis,
Our only company is dotted by circular scars.
From the primordial slime,
A self replicating enzyme.
Nature will blossom, born from dust,
A tilt allows the dance of season,
The love of our nature is a must:
For there must be a reason.
A place for life,
Sitting on the edge of a knife.
But five leviathans wait,
Extinction events wipe the slate.
Goldilocks luck of the draw,
We are born after the thaw.
Eyes within our head,
Consciousness and language said,
Abstractions for the mind,
We are no longer blind.
We see the terror, the love, the hope.
We invent prophets, God, and the pope.
God is real and it is humanity.
The fact some doubt this is insanity.
Don’t let anyone else tell you those lies,
The universe sees itself through your divine eyes.
We see below blue and above red,
We are somehow alive through atoms, dead.
Through magical machines, born from our mind.
The universe is what we were assigned.
To enlightenment we stride,
There is nothing for us to be denied.
